Laser Dentistry Q&A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry at Morris Dental Associates uses innovative Solea laser technology to complete minor procedures or clean teeth, removing harmful decay. It’s a comfortable, highly effective treatment that provides numerous oral health perks. Dr. Morris tailors each treatment to your personalized goals.

She is highly experienced in using lasers, as Dr. Morris was the only one to use laser technology in the Abilene area for many years.

What is laser dentistry used for?

Dr. Morris uses lasers to complete an array of dental treatments, including:


She uses laser technology to complete lip and tongue frenectomies (lip and tongue tie treatment) without cutting, needles, or burning. She treats patients as young as several days old. 

Crown lengthening

Lasers can reduce a gummy smile by eliminating excess soft tissue without numbing, surgery, or downtime. 

Gum contouring

Solea laser technology helps contour imperfect gums to achieve a flawless, more desirable gumline. 

Tooth decay removal

Lasers can remove bacteria, plaque, tartar, and decay during dental cleanings to treat gum disease or reduce the risk of other complications without numbing. Lasers can also treat canker sores.

Snoring reduction

Solea Sleep is a laser treatment for the soft palate that reduces snoring. Laser technology firms the pallet to lessen vibrations linked to snoring and improve sleep quality. 

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry can ease dental anxiety, as it often eliminates the need for shots, drilling, and other procedures some patients find scary — especially children. Laser treatments are comfortable and relaxing without significant pain, infection risks, or downtime. Patients remain awake during laser procedures, and recovery time is minimal.

What happens during laser dentistry treatments?

During laser treatments at Morris Dental Associates, you rest comfortably in a dental chair while your provider uses a painless, handheld laser device to clean your teeth, treat gum disease, or complete other soft tissue procedures. The length of laser dentistry treatment depends on the specific procedure you undergo.
